The Desert Eagle is a very large framed gas operated semi-automatic pistol jointly designed by our friends in Israel and Magnum Research in the United States.
An interesting note of trivia that I took away from this video: Did you know that it has a rotating bolt mechanism which resembles that of the M16 family of rifles?
I sure didn’t.
This is one of those firearms that has shown up in quite a few Hollywood movies. However, I have yet to see one of them at one of my local gun range or even for sale at one of my nearby gun shops.
But would I shoot one if I had the opportunity? Heck yes!
If I had the funds would I purchase one? Why yes, yes I would. Count me in to purchase probably two (one for each hand!), along with those awesome looking suppressors made especially for them and a few cases of ammunition!
Another item that occurred to me while watching this video was that I couldn’t help but wonder who goes to their local gun shop to buy this particular firearm? Who is going to slap down their hard earned greenbacks in order to take one of these babies home? I quickly realized that the answer to that question does not matter.
That I should just be grateful that most of us law abiding citizens in the United States still live in places where we can legally own such an amazing pistol.
